Intelligence is good for larger scale operations or territory but in a smaller scale and especially in ship vs ship combat.
I was watching a few of BjornBee’s recorded streaming sessions and I remembered that there was this thing that is bothering me for a long time now - your free fitting intel on any ship you bring.
In my humble opinion the fitting of a ship should be a surprise and not something you announce in local whenever you enter a solar system.
I am aware of the work it took to make all the ships look fancy and all and with gun-animations that give away your fit as a bonus took time and all but those gun animations do not belong on the ship you are flying and should only be visible on the gun info tab or in the dry-dock.
The “let’s see if he has autocannons or artilleries” needs to go. Before you make a first shot, nobody should know what you put on your ship or not.
If you want to see the nice animations, look at the info tap - you can make it as huge as you want - and have a looksy there.
As for the warp “gun is deploying” animation, this should be done 1 million km before you land.
